Have you ever?

Have you ever been to Inpatient treatment? What was your experience like? What was it like coming home

PLS Reblog  This week’s video is about how to successfully transition out of inpatient and back into our regular life.

I know it can be hard and we often worry that we will get out and go right back to the way it was. Here are some tips so we can set ourselves up for success!!! 

1. Set up our appointments! Make sure this is all set up before you leave treatment so that you have people ready to keep you on track when you get out

2. Create a schedule! Make plans with friends or look into joining support groups for those working on recovery, etc.

3. Use the tools they taught you in treatment! I know it’s annoying to journal everything out or argue back against that ED or SH voice, but whatever helped us before will most likely help us now! So keep doing it!!

Am I Transgender? What’s Gender Dysphoria? - Mental Health with Kati Morton 

I need your help please.

I received an awesome letter in my YouTube inbox. I want to share it with you all….

“Kati, I’m really glad you’ve helped so many people with your videos. I’ve watched a number of them (the ones with captions, at least). I was also interested in another video of yours which fortunately had captions. Btw, my wife and I are deaf. Which brings me off topic to this: We wish the YouTube automatic captions by speech recognition is good enough, but it isn’t. The automatic captions makes sense only 50% (often less) of the time. That’s why it’s important to have someone willing to take the time to manually type the video captions for deaf people like myself.

I realize you’re a busy person, and I’m not asking you to add the captions yourself. But I noticed something interesting… about a year ago, you used to put into the description section of your videos those two lines: Help us caption & translate this video!”…..

It’s Kati here again….

The letter goes on and it really touched my heart. As a community you have shared the videos &  some of you have have even translated them. If you have done this in the past, you know it’s a quick and easy process…

Here’s where I need your help: If you have some spare time or are looking for a distraction (hint hint) please visit this page: http://goo.gl/uQsMFc and choose a video. You can then add captions etc that will help not only people who don’t speak english but also the hearing impaired.  I REALLY REALLY appreciate any of you who are willing to support this effort. Please let me know if you have any questions.

Love you all!

sparklee--shinee asked: Hey Kati, I hope revision is going well... regarding the video you just shared, I've been trying to overcome these feelings that seem to have accumulated recently and I am in the process of writing out self-affirmations/ quotes on colourful paper and putting them in a jar (my positive jar) so that whenever I feel any of those things I can go to the jar and remind myself that I am enough or I am loved... anyway I thought you'd like that, I'll be sharing a post when I'm done so look out for it :D

Awesome! Please do share when you are ready. :)

be kind & reblog:

I receive a lot of questions about self-hatred, self-loathing & self-disgust. I feel that a lot of mental health issues that we deal with are rooted in this. What do we do to end the cycle of self-hatred, negative coping behavior, and more self-hatred?

FREE Self-Harm Recovery Workbook - from Kati Morton 

The stigma and lack of knowledge surrounding self-injury is one of the reasons I started to make videos. Recovery is possible, self-injury is a mental health issue that I frequently work on with my clients. Cutting, burning, hitting or otherwise injuring oneself is a coping mechanism. In this workbook, I show you ways to overcome and lead a healthier life. You can and will get better, but you have to want it, you have to work on it. Let’s do this together :) I know that therapy can be expensive and often is not even available in certain places.

I have been working on the Self-Harm workbook for about 8 months.  Watching channels by friends of mine on YouTube like Laura LeJeune and IDranktheSeaWater showed me that there was a place where I could help. I hope you enjoy the workbook. I’d love to hear from you about how you are using it.

xoxo Kati

hey-its-emilyb asked: Can "big girls" or overweight people have eating disorders? And when I tell someone why do they never take me seriously?

Absolutely they can and they may not take someone seriously because they themselves are not informed.
